Abiotic and Biotic Facotrs in the Deep Sea

Abiotic factors are non-living conditions which influence where and how plants and animals live. Some Abiotic factors are sunlight, temperature, currents and nutrients available. Biotic factors are living parts of the ecosystem. Like Plants, Animals, Fungi, Algae and Bacteria.

Invasive Species in the Deep Sea

Invasive Species are organisms with negative effects on the ecosystem. One in the Deep Sea is the Limpet.

Water Movement in the Deep Sea

The Deep Sea doesn't have any fast moving sections of water. This happens because it's so far down that currents can't go that far down. The just move the water a little not affecting the organisms that live there.

What we can do to help

Recycle stuff appropriately, don't throw trash into the ocean and make trash companies pick up trash more than once a week.
